LSVT BIG: Parkinson's Program
People living with Parkinson’s Disease, as well as other Neurological conditions are often forced to change their activities and life style. The LSVT BIG program gives patients the opportunity to restore their movement and improve their balance. The program helps patients walk faster, take bigger steps, improve balance, improve daily activities and improve trunk rotation with activities.
The program is a treatment protocol is 16 sessions over four weeks that can be modified to meet the goals of each individual and can be modified to meet people where they are within the disease progression. Working with a LSVT certified therapist and being compliant with assigned home exercises has been shown to help patients dealing with these limitations return safely to activities they have been avoiding.
